Coconut Cookies


Yields 15-20 medium sized cookies

1. 1 cup all purpose flour (maida)
2. 1/4 cup soft unsalted butter 
3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
4. A pinch of baking soda
5. 1 cup powdered sugar
6. 1/2 cup desiccated coconut


1. In a bowl, sieve together all purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda. Keep it aside.
2. In another bowl, whisk together sugar and butter until they are creamy. Add the flour mixture and coconut in it.
3. Knead to form a dough. Rest the dough in refrigerator for 15-20 mins.
4. After the dough is ready, roll out a thick chapati from it and cut out equal sized cookies with the help of a cookie cutter. 
5. Place these cookies on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven (180 C) for about 20 mins.
6. Once baked, take the cookies out and place them on a wire rack so that they come to room temperature.
7. Garnish with coconut powder and serve.



  1. hei .. I love those coco cookies .. can u suggest if baking it at 180 for 20 mins in micro wave cum oven is all the same ?
    I have had bad experiences in the past due to time mismatch !!

  2. It would be better if u could use an oven :) Otherwise just bake it until u see a light golden colour on the cookies :)
